Lyrics
Doll Babe I'm so alone tonight
Ain't cetain if I'm wrong or right
Ain't certain if it's all worthwhile
Lord Babe if I could see your smile...

I'm standing on the shoreline looking at the raging sea
It's ugly, dark and cold and I'm feeling like it's inside of me
Thinking that by now I'm old enough to act my age
Caught up in it all I'm working trying to turn that page

Doll Babe I know you won't come here
You're way beyond this atmosphere
I'm struggling where you used to be
Lord, baby, how'd'you get so free

You've got my respect and I'm jealous too but that's alright
(what I'm trying to say)
It sure would do me good if I could hold you tight tonight
I can't put you down but other people talk that mess
Well I hope you're happy now babe, happy with your sweet success

Doll Babe it's getting way too real
I miss the way I used to feel
Can't ever live the past again
Wish I knew now what I knew then

And walking in the sand I look to see the tracks I've made
The tide is rushing in and I'm watching while my footprints fade
It's been a lonesome time since you were back here in my arms
And yes I wonder now who's melting in your doll baby charms

Doll Babe I'm so alone tonight
Ain't certain if I'm wrong or right
Ain't certain if it's all worthwhile
Lord babe if I could see your smile....
